UNW_SET_FPREG(3)					       Programming Library						  UNW_SET_FPREG(3)

NAME
unw_set_fpreg -- set contents of floating-point register SYNOPSIS
#include <libunwind.h> int unw_set_fpreg(unw_cursor_t *cp, unw_regnum_t reg, unw_fpreg_t val); DESCRIPTION
The unw_set_fpreg() routine sets the value of register reg in the stack frame identified by cursor cp to the value passed in val. The register numbering is target-dependent and described in separate manual pages (e.g., libunwind-ia64(3) for the IA-64 target). Further- more, the exact set of accessible registers may depend on the type of frame that cp is referring to. For ordinary stack frames, it is nor- mally possible to access only the preserved (``callee-saved'') registers and frame-related registers (such as the stack-pointer). However, for signal frames (see unw_is_signal_frame(3)), it is usually possible to access all registers. Note that unw_set_fpreg() can only write the contents of floating-point registers. See unw_set_reg(3) for a way to write registers which fit in a single word. RETURN VALUE
On successful completion, unw_set_fpreg() returns 0. Otherwise the negative value of one of the error-codes below is returned. THREAD AND SIGNAL SAFETY
unw_set_fpreg() is thread-safe as well as safe to use from a signal handler. ERRORS
UNW_EUNSPEC An unspecified error occurred. UNW_EBADREG An attempt was made to write a register that is either invalid or not accessible in the current frame. UNW_EREADONLY An attempt was made to write to a read-only register. In addition, unw_set_fpreg() may return any error returned by the access_mem(), access_reg(), and access_fpreg() call-backs (see unw_cre- ate_addr_space(3)). SEE ALSO

UNW_INIT_LOCAL(3)					       Programming Library						 UNW_INIT_LOCAL(3)

NAME
unw_init_local -- initialize cursor for local unwinding SYNOPSIS
#include <libunwind.h> int unw_init_local(unw_cursor_t *c, unw_context_t *ctxt); DESCRIPTION
The unw_init_local() routine initializes the unwind cursor pointed to by c with the machine-state in the context structure pointed to by ctxt. As such, the machine-state pointed to by ctxt identifies the initial stack frame at which unwinding starts. The machine-state must remain valid for the duration for which the cursor c is in use. The unw_init_local() routine can be used only for unwinding in the address space of the current process (i.e., for local unwinding). For all other cases, unw_init_remote() must be used instead. From a behavioral point of view, the call: ret = unw_init_local(&cursor, &ucontext); is equivalent to: ret = unw_init_remote(&cursor, unw_local_addr_space, &ucontext); However, unwind performance may be better when using unw_init_local(). Also, unw_init_local() is available even when UNW_LOCAL_ONLY has been defined before including <libunwind.h>, whereas unw_init_remote() is not. RETURN VALUE
On successful completion, unw_init_local() returns 0. Otherwise the negative value of one of the error-codes below is returned. THREAD AND SIGNAL SAFETY
unw_init_local() is thread-safe as well as safe to use from a signal handler. ERRORS
UNW_EINVAL unw_init_local() was called in a version of libunwind which supports remote unwinding only (this normally happens when calling unw_init_local() for a cross-platform version of libunwind). UNW_EUNSPEC An unspecified error occurred. UNW_EBADREG A register needed by unw_init_local() wasn't accessible. SEE ALSO
